Paper Title - Comparing Security between Open-Source And Close-Source Operating Systems


Abstract
The argument whether open-source code is more secure than proprietary software has more or less has been one of opinions and beliefs and not based on empirical tests and validation. In this paper, I examine the vulnerabilities of data and compare closed-source and open-source operating systems. My results indicate that although there are differences in the total number of vulnerabilities reported, there is no difference in the average risk per vulnerability between open-source and proprietary operating systems. Keywords- Open-source, Security
